MJ International is aimed at students living outside Quebec who would like to discover La Belle Province by going on a mission trip to Quebec.
*Made by a MJ International team!
Did you know that less than 0,8% of the population of Quebec identify themselves as evangelical Christians?
- Quebecers are a warm people, who love to laugh, but who are desperately lost and in search of their identity.
- They hold certain Catholic traditions (ex. infant baptism, religious funerals, midnight mass) but reject religious authority of any kind. The typical Quebecer doesn’t trust religion, and the majority of Quebecers do not even believe in God, despite a few religious habits being part of their life.
- The younger generation of Quebecers ignore everything about Jesus. However, this young generation is intrigued by spiritual subjects.
How to reach Quebecers? Why should anyone come to Quebec to share the Christian faith with a Quebecer?
Quebecers love to share their opinion and are open to discuss spiritual subjects.
Even if the typical Quebecer tells you that everything is fine with his/her life, there is a great emptiness that people of this province seek to fill.
A great opportunity
What does Mouvement Jeunesse seek to accomplish in Quebec?
From the end of May to the beginning of August, Mouvement Jeunesse gathers youths ages 18 and up, trains them and sends them all over Quebec. In teams of 4 to 8, the MJ participants serve local churches and help accomplish church projects during the summer.
Visiting both small and big cities, the MJ teams will meet a variety of needs, such as:
- House cleaning, painting, window washing, picking up of trash
- Distribute event invitations
- Running surveys about spirituality in parks or using door-to-door approach
- Organizing soccer camps
- Organizing activities for kids groups
- And much more!
The MJ teams support churches and encourage them. Also, they are used as tools in the hands of our Lord to talk about Jesus to a people desperately in need of the Saviour.
